Brian McGreevy Book Optioned For Netflix

With the rise of Netflix original programming, getting a book adapted to Netflix is a new channel for authors looking to expand the options on their work.

Author Brian McGreevy‘s upcoming novel Hemlock Grove is being adapted into an original series for Netflix. McGreery has even been involved in the production.

Publishers Weekly has the story:

The author, publicist Sarah Russo explained, interviewed a number of producers about the work, which is a gothic tale set in Pittsburgh. McGreevy, she said, wanted someone who would do the material justice and ‘pursue a ‘hard R’ approach,’ she explained, adding that the goal was to find a partner willing to go ‘the Twin Peaks route, i.e. very dark and very weird.’

A murder mystery peppered with colorful characters, the novel has the trappings of a television drama. Here is more about the book from Macmillan’s website: “The body of a young girl is found mangled and murdered in the woods of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, in the shadow of the abandoned Godfrey Steel mill. A manhunt ensues—though the authorities aren’t sure if it’s a man they should be looking for.”
